Guidelines for Reopening Campus

We plan to reopen campus in the fall with a scheduled start date of September 1, 2020 for elementary school (grades K-6) and September 3, 2020 for secondary school (grades 7-12). We continue to consult the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health guidelines. Our plan is centered on physical distancing on campus and in the classroom, expanded cleaning and health protocols, and health screenings.

Frequently Asked Questions

What safety protocols will be in place on campus when it reopens?
All students will have their temperature checked and will not be allowed to stay at school if they have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher. Families will also be required to complete a health screening questionnaire each day. If a child is sick, they should not come to campus; there will be remote learning options for students at all grade levels who need to stay home. Once on campus, students will follow pedestrian traffic signage and adhere to one-way routes. Students will be spaced 6 feet apart in classrooms and on campus, and frequent hand washing will be built into the schedule. Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout campus. In addition, the campus will undergo a deep cleaning at the end of every school day, and restrooms will be frequently cleaned and sanitized. We are not allowing anyone except staff and students (parents by appointment only) to enter campus. All large gatherings and meetings will be held virtually.

Will masks be required?
Yes. Students and teachers will be required to wear masks on campus except when eating lunch. Please have your student practice wearing masks for long periods of time now! You may want to explore which mask type works best for your student and remind them of their part in keeping themselves and others safe.
